Walleye Bite on St. Louis River Sure to Hook Anglers

Updated: May 15, 2020 10:41 PM

The walleye bite on the St. Louis River had been fantastic. Grant Sorensen, the owner of Superior Angling Company, said that he's hooked hundreds of walleye in the Duluth area. 


"Conditions are just ideal in terms of water temperature and fish movement. The fish are very accessible and hungry so we do a lot of traveling all over the Midwest and Canada and we can compare this bite to a lot of other fisheries. This is elite, this is one of the best bites that's going on right now in a long time," said Grant Sorenson.

Sorensen said instead of trolling shallow water, they get out with jigging sticks and a minnow. 

Videos from his latest trip out on the water will air during his Superior Angling show which starts up again on Sunday. Season four aired in February.

"A lot of our content is shot and aired within a week or two weeks, so it's good relevant information. You can take what you learned and go out and apply that on the water Monday morning and you're going to catch fish," said Sorenson.

He established the show in 2014 to showcase what Northland bodies of water have to offer while providing fishing tips. It will air Sundays at 5:30 p.m. on WDIO.
